Institution Building in Urban Education.
Janowitz, Morris
This book presents a sociological perspective on the issues involved in transferring the institutional structure of inner city schools, and discusses the closing of the gap between sociological analysis and policy, and professional practice and citizen participation. Examining the published and unpublished studies of experimental programs in urban education, and various surveys and proposals for reorganizing public school systems, the book focuses on the following areas: the slum school and contemporary society, the organizational format of the public school system, alternative models of change, operational elements of the school system, and school-community relations. For inner city education, the basic implications of the specialization and the aggregation models are held to rest on political issues of Federal versus state and local control, and geared to be relevant to the differing forms of control. The notion of the aggregation model, however, is concluded to be the one relevant to the entire social structure. (RJ)
